Colorado Rights Blog


  • Tuesday Olson knew her pregnancy was in trouble and tried to access hospital care as soon as possible. But there was a problem: she was in jail. This is her story.
  • It’s time to end the death penalty in Colorado. Family members who lost loved ones to murder speak out against an unjust and broken system.

  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

  • By canceling DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. Passing the bipartisan Dream Act would protect them. We asked four Dreamers why the Dream Act is important to them and their future.

ACLU of Colorado – Speaker Request Form

Please use the form below to request a speaker for either a Know Your Rights (KYR) presentation*, a panel, or a keynote address. Filling out this form with as many details as possible will help us determine the most appropriate representative we should send, based on content and availability. Due to increased demand, we require four weeks’ notice and an audience of at least 15 participants to schedule an event. For smaller events and house parties, we can send ACLU handouts and materials for you to share. Other events will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please note that we cannot guarantee a speaker for every event, but we will do our best.

* A note on KYR presentations: We provide a set curriculum developed by the ACLU of Colorado to help individuals gain a practical understanding of their rights under Colorado and U.S. laws, and to think about how that might apply to them. Presentations are offered by staff or trained volunteers. KYR presentations typically last one to two hours in length in order to comprehensively cover the information.
